12 In A Row
Posted 12:59 PM ET | Comments 1
Last night's 4-3 victory was the twelfth time in a row that the Predators have won over the Columbus Bluejackets. Honestly i can't believe it. Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then!
Last nights win did not come easy though (actually all of the contests between Columbus and Nashville are heavily contested) with Nashville having to come back late in the third down 3-2. Getting goals from Jordin Tootoo (career best 7th of the year) and Ville Koistinen the Preds got ahead with less than two minutes left and held on for the win.
Ville Koistinen continues to impress and is winning praises from Preds coach Barry Trotz who, according to an article on TSN, has called Ville the teams best defencemen. He continued his praise for the young blueliner after last nights game.
"The puck-distributing part of Ville's game is really solid," Trotz said. "He has a lot of life in his legs right now. Ville gets the job done with his feet. He has been good. He had a huge goal."
With Suter and Weber both out with leg injuries (how generic is that?) this is a good time for Ville to step up his game. If only Kevin Klein could take a page from his book and do the same.
Mason's second goal allowed was a softy for sure but I think slowly but surely that Mason is getting the swagger back in his game. He will need all that and more when the Sharks come calling Saturday night to the Sommet Center.
Family Four Packs: Okay...here's the deal. This is the perfect deal to take some newbies to. For $99 the Preds are offering 4 attack twice mezzanine seats, four hot dogs, four drinks and four skating passes...and let me tell you, those seats in the attack twice mezz are, for the money, the best seats in the house. Close to the action and a perfect view of the ice.
Tickets are still available for Saturdays contest with the Sharks...a great New Years weekend activity for the whole family!
